The Napoleonic era in Imperial Russia is seen through the eyes of the Bolkonsky, Rostov, Bezukhov, Kuragin, and Drubetskoy families in Leo Tolstoy's literary masterpiece. As Napoleon's troops close in, talk of the impending invasion consumes Saint Petersburg society. As the city's aristocratic families declare their allegiances, they find their fortunes and futures profoundly impacted by their chosen alliances-be them to the conquering army or to the imperial family. Be it mystery, romance, drama, comedy, politics, or history, great literature stands the test of time.
